This week I learned that kids (and grown ups) can be annoying, that life is sometimes overwhelming and that there is usually a reason to laugh.
- There are fancy names for things: A litte boy said I know a fancy name for a spoon and a fork. I was leaning towards Spork. Nope. He said...silverware.
- Words can sound similiar. For example: A student, when asked what he was telling the boy who just hit him, might be saying "I said what gives? Your dad is a bastard?" Or he could be saying, "I said what gives? Your dad is a pastor." Sound similar. Have totally different meanings.
- High pitched whining is my kryptonite: Imagine if you will a 2nd grader yelling in a high pitched squeaky voice "Hurry up!" "Why are you taking so long?" and then leaning up over the counter to grab his own sandwich and then once again squeal "Hurry up will ya." I leaned over the counter and got eye level with him and with my voice raised said, "If you continue to speak to me in this manner I will move you to the very end of the 2nd grade line.
- No one reads the menu. Our district is looking for ways to save money. My suggestion--eliminate the menu because no one reads it anyway.
- Snow isn't the only thing that makes kids wild. We had kids dancing inappropriately, we had hitting, we had biting, we had groping, we had inappropriate language. I'm blaming it on the full moon.
What did you learn this week?
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
